Gio Urshela set to rejoin New York Yankees at Oakland

The New York Yankees already have a formidable team, yet they are about to welcome back a major piece into their lineup.
Gio Urshela, a third baseman, started his rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset on Sunday, and from the looks of it, the player was good at the plate as he went 3-for-4 with a double.

Following the comments of the New York manager, Aaron Boone, Urshela will be starring in another game for the Patriots on Tuesday night, and if all things are positive, the player should be able to rejoin the franchise when they travel west on Thursday to visit the Oakland Athletics for a four-game set clash, and high roller online casinos will be backing the game set with several odds.

As the Athletics are currently on the outside of the American League playoff picture-2.5 games back of the New York Yankees for the top Wild Card spot and also a half game behind the Red Sox for the second slot-this series has severe postseason consequences on the line as the Yankees will need to maximize all the help they could muster to keep a tight leash on their lead.

Urshela went straight to the injured list on August 3 having succumbed to a left hamstring strain, which happened in a week right right after he returned to the team from the Covid-19 injured list that kept him out of the team for over a week.
In the third baseman's absence, the New York Yankees have been on good form as they went on to win 10 straight games which are 17 of their last 20 to move up the standings, making them a serious playoff challenger, and best au online pokies take them as favourites.

If the Yankees were unable to acquire Anthony Rizzo and Joey Gallo at the trade deadline, they might have trouble filling the void left behind by Urshela for a long time. But the addition of the two All-Stars helped strengthen the Yankees' team.
When the newly-acquired Rizzo went on the Covid-19 injured list, Luke Voit immediately stepped up as an impact bat, and he didn't disappoint on the plate.

Aside from all that, the Yankees have been receiving major contributions from Tyler Wade and Andrew Velazquez, helping the team fill the void left behind in the infield as Urshela and Gleyber Torres entered the injured list.
With the return of Urshela just right in the corner, the Yankees' lineup will only look more than dangerous than before, as the team is looking to make the postseason for the fifth consecutive campaign.
